The CCC did extensive work at Coopers Rock State Forest, near Morgantown, West Virginia. A plaque at the park reads: "In recognition of their historic significance, the Coopers Rock facilities, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps 1936-1942, have been placed in the National Register of Historic Places, by the U.S. Department of the Interior." (Plaque created by the Coopers Rock Foundation)
Coopers Rock is just one of the hundreds of parks that the CCC helped develop in America.
